77ships (9216) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2017
Sampled keg. Possibly infected. Orange hazy amber, off-white head, creamy. Nose is some brett with marmelade, candied fruit. Taste is overly sweet, butter, caramel, less brett than in the nose, sugar, caramel, bit too sugary. Not really what an IPA should be, likely a bad batch. Body is sweet caramel, sugar, butter.

Bottle sample at a Farewell to Bugrashov tasting at Stasí. Thanks Stas. Murky amber-brown. Yeasty aroma with a little sweet bubblegum. Yeasty, a little bitter and old taste. Light-to-medium body, bitter, yeasty finish.

Alengrin (5087) - BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2016
IPA from a Spanish brewing company which is best known in Belgium for its collabs with Het Nest. No gushing, but still the head is towering high, inches thick even with careful pouring, rocky, bath foam-like, egg-white in colour and very dense, leaving thick patches of ípaperyí lacing on the edges; initially clear, deep amber colour with bright orange hue, turning hazy and almost coppery with sediment. Aroma of lemon-scented soap, kumquat, pink grapefruit peel, biscuit, lavender, cloves, ginger, persimmon, sundried tomato, vermouth, dried mango, roasted pine nuts, dry earth, tree leaves, gin, barbecue sauce, bell pepper, carrot - a mixture of Belgian yeastiness, phenolic and estery, with strong hop fragrance. Vivid onset with an unsurprisingly sharp, minerally, souring and somewhat numbing carbonation attacking hints of dried redcurrant, green banana, unripe peach and gooseberry, sourish with a sweet core blending in with a biscuity, nutty malt backbone, becoming strongly toasted in the end, the bitterness of which not just supports, but almost overpowers the drying, resinous, wormwood- and grapefruit peel-like, actually quite harsh hop bitterness, which lasts for a long time along with retronasal phenols (cloves) and floral and earthy hop notes. A soapy effect remains together with a long, tonic water-ish bitterness, a bready and notably sourish yeastiness and lots of toasted malt bitterness. Something went wrong with fermentation here: though I got no gushing, it is still very difficult to pour this beer without ending up with a head of several inches thick, and this visual feature is doubtlessly connected to the - for this style - highly phenolic, yeasty and very earthy character in nose and mouth, making it very íBelgianí in its general make-up. I can accept this as a decent íBelgian IPAí - whether this was the intention or not - but I can imagine many people expecting a clean Anglo-Saxon IPA will be disappointed. Still, flavour-wise there is not much wrong with this, this beer shows uncompromizing bitterness and personality, from a longneck bottle with a glossy label depicting a female devil... Unexpected and a bit weird, but enjoyable.

ciocanelu (2047) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 1, 2016
Murky amber color with huge, frothy, beige head. Aroma has old, resiny hops and some booze. Taste starts with toasted, nutty malt, old hop character and harsh bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. I suppose the bottle was quite old but still, it has some evident flaws.

Beerbecero (4) - SPAIN - OCT 19, 2016 does not count
Beer orange appearance with small bubbles. Fruity aroma and flavor, rather citrus. The foam base is a brown and white head. Bitterness fair and some resinous aftertaste. Another IPA, but without proper personality.

Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2016
On tap @ BierCab. This is a light blurry soft amber colored one. A nice white bubbly head is safely placed on the top and itís lacing quite nicely as well. A really nice sweet hoppy and fruity aroma on this. Caramel and malts to the balance. It has a oily feeling in the mouth and itís just below average on the small bubbles. Well bitter almost a little resinous. Piney, dry with hints of wood. Red long fruity tail. Good stuff. 05.08.2014
